Subject: Burgers, a Men's Choir, and Power
Opening of the film Adland, featuring singing McDonalds hamburger puppets (you know how I feel about singing and dancing food, folks), a Pontiac mens choir, and commercial director George Lois, talking about what its all about for him. This makes me wish they had put up the whole film, rather than just excerpts from it.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.
